The University of Chicago Slavic Forum invites graduate students working with the literatures and cultures of Russia and Central/Eastern Europe to submit abstracts for a twenty-minute presentation. Although we welcome abstracts on all topics related to Slavic and East/Central European literatures, this year's conference is especially interested in interdisciplinary approaches to literature and culture. We are actively seeking papers which put to use the best of cultural theory and popular culture studies, post-totalitarian/ post-modernist critical methods, as well as approaches that focus on the new nationalisms of the region, multi- and inter-medial arts (film, photography, music) and various "non-traditional" treatments of the literatures and cultures of the region under consideration. This year's conference is sponsored in part by the Chicago Humanities Institute. Interested graduate students should send their abstracts (of 250 words or less) to the following address by February 6: SLAVIC FORUM Attn: Malynne Sternstein, Assistant Professor Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures The University of Chicago 1130 East 59th Street Chicago, Illinois 60637 USA Abstracts may also be submitted by e-mail to m-sternstein@uchicago.edu. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Malynne Sternstein, Assistant Professor Slavic Languages and Literatures University of Chicago ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
